Education and career fair returns to Tradex

The annual Education and Career Fair (ECF) is coming to Tradex in Abbotsford on Dec. 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Going into its 16th year, ECF has assisted secondary school students, job seekers, adult learners and career changers with the opportunity to examine education and career paths.

To make it easier for visitors, ECF is composed of five feature areas – Career Training, Colleges, Universities, Associations and Employers.

Exhibitors come from B.C., across Canada, the United States and various international locations. A variety of industries such as trades, health care, tourism, arts and technology, esthetics, automotive, forestry, oil, and policing will be on hand to provide attendees with information about their industry and what it takes to excel within it.

New to the event is the addition of the THINK!nternational feature area which highlights study, work, travel and volunteer opportunities abroad.

Visitors can attend the seminar sessions presented by industry professionals. Seminars are 30 minutes in length and cover popular topics in the labor market and industry trends.

ECF has opportunities to win bursaries / scholarships and prizes. For example, LaSalle College is offering a $2,000 bursary at the event.

“Our events are unique because attendees are exposed to a variety of career options they may not have previously considered or knew existed,” explained Mathias Posch, president of ECF.

ECF offers free admission for community organizations and secondary schools. Regular admission is $5 at the door, cash only.
